With the Texas State Fair in full-swing and people flocking from all across the Lone Star State (and the nation!) we wanted to make sure y’all knew how to capture your fair memories and make ’em last forever. There are so many opportunities to corral your group of friends or family together and take a picture at the Fair.
Here are some popular spots you don’t want to miss for that perfect photo background:
1) At the Texas Star Ferris Wheel – This 212 feet tall Ferris Wheel makes for a great background but if you’re willing to stand in line, the view from the top is definitely worth the wait!
2) With Big Tex – New this year: A Photo Booth to give you an up-close and personal picture with Big Tex. It’s the closest thing to a Big Tex selfie you can git! Check out the details here.
3) New this year: The Pontoon Bridge that gives easier access to the Canstruction exhibit and Kid’s Boardwalk is a great place to snap a selfie with the Texas Star in the background!
4) With your favorite fried food! – You’re bound to try something you’ve never tasted before. Don’t let that memory fade with the flavor, take a pic and relive the deep-fried goodness for years!
If you’re hankerin’ for some prize-winnin’ photography and think your skills have a chance at capturing the best photo at the Fair, then hop on over to the Dallas Morning News’ Photo Contest!
Whatever State Fair memories you make we hope that you take advantage of all the many spectacular sights and events. There really is no better place to experience all the things that make the Lone Star State so unique!
